City Travel - packing for NYC

•••
I love big cities. Having grown up in a town too small for my ambition I have spent the last 10 years of my life living in Paris, London, New York, San Francisco and various other capitols of the world. Obviously I have closely observed the fashion trends in each of those cities and will try to give you a good clue which sort of outfits are "very Paris", "v[...]

Saying goodbye isn't easy (unless you do it drinking punch and wearing costumes)

•••
I don't think I could have timed it more perfectly: my last weekend in England and an American Apparel hosted Halloween Burlesque night in Bristol?! Hell yes. Talk about a Bon Voyage party in style! It was the perfect opportunity to scrap together some family and friends, dress up, hit the bottle and paint the town blood red. The timing of  a great night an[...]

It's the final countdown.

•••
Today, at precisely 4pm, I lifted a delicious glass of wine with my poor injection riddled arm (vaccine-galore) to toast to Thailand. I have finally finished my last week at work after massively stressful times of having to call about thirty women to book appointments due to a postal strike. Talk about the perfect farewell week at my hospital administration [...]

The Eleventh Commandment

•••
‘Thou Shalt Pick Thy Travelling Partner Carefully’ Let me introduce my friend Alicé. Assuming I make it through the two months travelling alone in Thailand, I’ll be meeting up with this light-haired lass in Kuala Lumpur in the new year. Originally, we were going to be travelling together for the whole adventure with added trips to Vietnam, Cambodia and L[...]

Quit one life, plan another

•••
‘To Whom it may Concern, I have thoroughly enjoyed working for this establishment over the past few months. Everyone has been very kind and welcoming, however I would like to take this opportunity to give in my notice. I’m getting the hell out of England, enjoy the office – bye!’ Ok, the last sentence was a bit of improvisation on my behalf, but yes. Today[...]

'Winter itinerary' or 'How to make europe your oyster'

•••
It hasn't even been a month since I got back from my 4-week trip around India and Thailand and already the travel bug is itching me again. Luckily winter times are kind when it comes to prices for flights so I went a little overboard and booked not one, not two, but THREE leisure trips over the next few months. November 6-9 London (40 euros with ryanair) [...]

Voulez-vous party avec moi?

•••
Travel time is party time. You're on vacation, goddammit, have yourself some jolly good fun. Usually, when you're traveling through various cities and countries you won't know what the good places are to go to. This is the one time when checking your guide book probably is not of much help, especially if your taste in bars or clubs doesn't correspond to a[...]

"i wish i traveled more"

•••
do you hear yourself saying this? do you find yourself browsing cheap flights without any actual plans to go on a trip? have you and your girlfriends been making plans for the past 2 years of going to spain or greece and it seems to never happen? do you sit on a couch with a pina-colada drink from a can watching the second part of bridget jones (the one wher[...]

To Do List for India

•••
Monday morning. It's august 3rd. In 19 hours I will board the plane that is to take me to India and although I'm able to write up these lines in a calm and composed manner I'm actually panicking. I am freaking out. It's the last day of getting things done and I have an endless list of stuff I need to do.Ii'm still pretty new to the whole "having a career thi[...]
